Online bookmaker Paddy Power will give a free bet each time your Premier League Top Goalscorer outright selection scores during the 2015/16 season.
The offer was extremely popular in the build up to last season and is sure to be a big hit with football punters once more as we enter the final two weeks of build up to the big kick-off in the Premier League.
How Does The Offer Work?
Paddy Power customers must stake £20 (includes £10 each-way) on the Premier League Top Goalscorer market to qualify for the promotion. Then each time your player hits the back of the net throughout the 2015/16 Premier League season, you'll pick up a £2 free bet.
You'll qualify for a free bet for every single goal your selection scores, so if your player bangs in hat-trick, you'll pick up £6 in free bets. Though please do be aware that you'll only be able to claim a maximum of £10 in free bets per week, Monday to Sunday, when using the promotion and own goals do not count.
Free bets will be credited on a weekly basis, by 12pm every Monday and will be valid for use on any sports betting market at Paddy Power over the following 7 days.
The Usual Suspects
Punters that sided with Sergio Agüero last season would have not only landed the outright bet, but also picked up a whopping £52 in free bets over the course of the season as the Man City striker banged 26 goals to be crowned Premier League Top Goalscorer. The Argentine hitman is sure to be a popular selection again despite being prone to the odd injury and if remaining fit for the majority of the season is expected to continue firing.
Tottenham's Harry Kane was something of a revelation last term and any Spurs fans that had a punt on the back of his early promise would have picked up a decent each-way return and a cool £42 in free bets as he found the net 21 times. Now established as his side's number 1 striker, Kane will be firmly in punters' minds for First Goalscorer bets over the course of the season and will be expecting to get into double figures at least.
Diego Costa had a couple of spells on the sidelines after making a fantastic start for Chelsea, eventually ending the season with 20 goals. The Spaniard will be hoping to stay out of the physio room this season and perhaps better his tally for the defending champions.
Christian Benteke was another that had his pitch time limited through injury, yet still managed to amass 13 goals to help Aston Villa beat the drop. Now at Liverpool, the powerful Belgian is expected to have plenty of goal-scoring opportunities and surely rates as a sporting each-way bet.
Others To Consider
Wayne Rooney has been assured a role as Man Utd's main striker after netting 12 times from midfield last season, while Charlie Austin awaits a move to a Premier League club from relegated QPR after an impressive 18-goal haul in his first season in the top-flight.
Arsenal's Alexis Sánchez netted 16 times from midfield, while Eden Hazard managed 14 and David Silva scored 12 league goals.
Make sure you place your bets before the closing date of 12:45pm on Saturday 8th August. If you're interested in taking part in the promotion and have not yet signed up with Paddy Power, then follow this link to register and you'll get £30, credited three £10 free bets for staking just £10.
